    So sorry to hear of your loss. I know how difficult death can be, our heavenly father also knows what we are going through. In his word the bible, he gives us comfort and hope. Revelation 21:4 says that He will wipe every tear from our eyes, and pain and death will be done away with. This is very comforting especially as we realize that this has to be referring to the earth, because these things don't exist in heaven.
